Topeka Man Pleads Guilty to Aiding and Abetting Robbery
TOPEKA, KS—A Topeka man pleaded guilty Monday to giving another man a rifle and serving as a lookout while the gun was used in a liquor store robbery, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.
Aaron Roy Bundy, 27, Topeka, Kansas, pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting robbery. In his plea, he admitted that he gave a man who was staying in his apartment a .22 caliber rifle. On May 12, 2014, Bundy served as a lookout while the other man used the rifle to rob Patty’s Retail Liquor at 3705 S.W. Plaza Drive in Topeka.
Co-defendant Weston Brett Canfield is awaiting trial.
Bundy is set for sentencing September 29. He faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
Grissom commended the Topeka Police Department, the FBI, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jared Maag for their work on the case.
In all cases, defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. The indictments merely contain allegations of criminal conduct.
